Edward Petrossi's Story

What can be gleened from Edward Petrossi's experience?

Mainly, just because a punk with a blade thinks he is Billy Badass doesn't mean he is!

I do not like to second guess those who have seen the elephant, but much can be learned by analyzing shootouts after the fact. God bless the defender with the gun, and may God damn his attackers.

Oh, the humanity! If knives were banned, surely young punks wouldn't feel the urge to rob convenience stores!

It's too bad that store camera didn't have a higher frame rate. That looked like a sweet kick.

"A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week."

Immediate, unrelenting, powerful resistance to criminal activity is a helluva lot better than waiting for the cops fifteen minutes later.

What amuses me is that the goblin has a knife in one hand and his pants in the other. You'd think if someone was going to rob someone they would at least have enough sense to keep their pants from falling down. He's lucky the store owner ran him off instead of beating the shit out of him.

Things I take:
1) Have a plan for defense, even if disarmed by the gummint. What can you use as an alternative weapon?

2) Refuse to be a victim. Fight back.

It seems that he may have also helped himself by confronting someone acting (blatantly) strangely, which may have also given him the element of surprise (not that he needed to, with the ability to kick ass). God-Bless this immigrant from Iran and may he truly assimilate into our society and prosper.
